    Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared II: Time

    ★★★★

    This is the best one.

  • The Handmaiden

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★

    I'm a dirty old man who likes erotica

    My subtitles were kinda poor but its still easy to appreciate the craft on display here. Park Chan-wook is definitely one of the best directors working at the moment.

    I haven't read Fingersmith So I'm not sure what can be credited to Sarah Waters and what to Chan-wook and co. but the twists and turns keep the wild ride going.

    A Very English Scandal

    ★★★½

    Glad to see Hugh Grant getting a comeback plus the writing was pretty stellar with only a few clunky moments.

  • Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji

    Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji

    ★★★★★

    This was just spectacular through and through with the final act leaving me speechless.

    Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji seems to join two eras of Japanese cinema together, with its charming sense of humour and humanity that could make it a contemporary with the works of Yamanaka and Ozu (Ozu and Shimizu are both credited as some sort of producers) whilst its themes of class and its brutailty almost definetly inspired Hara-Kiri and the other 'cruel Jidai-Geki'.

    This makes sense…
